(FUMA.TIF) Francesco Galleto, known as "U Fumo," was the First Ward’s famous sweet potato man. In the winter he sold chestnuts and hot sweet potatoes at the corner of Seventh Avenue and Factory Street outside McKinley School. He had a little push cart with a stove and three metal drawers on which he cooked his sweet potatoes. Clouds of smoke ("fumo") from his oven encircled him as he peddled his sweet potaoes. He wore an oversized Italian army coat and attracted customers by blowing on a bugle.
